Dramatic-Sexy-Lip Colours-for-Fall-ravishing-gloss-red

Lipstick shades come and go, dramatic luscious colours, and throughout the year colour vibrancy changes along with the seasons. In spring time colours lighten up, for the most part summers go nude, and with the fall, colours deepen and intensify. Colour used to make up for the drab of the impending “doom” of the fall and winter seasons. Seasons portrayed as dull and grey and reflected in the fashions of the day, all except the lips. Pouty sexy lips to wear punches of colour through to the returning spring. Dramatic luscious colours in fall, that’s what’s sexy this week.

I believe in lip colour all year long, spring, summer, fall and winter, as with my love of the four seasons, so is my love of lipstick. Fall however seems to be that time of year when lip colours get stronger, because of what I believe is fashion dictating style. I’m ok with that, my only wish is for people to wear those dramatic luscious colours all year long.

For now making due with the colours offered in fall, like the changing the leaves, colours that are bright, vivid, and alive. A candy shop offering sweet treats to tempt and entice you; passion fruit pinks, lemon drop yellows, caramel creams, gummy bear greens and milk chocolate browns.

High fashion colours like burnt oranges, ravishing reds, chocolate browns, pulsating purples, blackest blacks, you get the idea enough to set those lips and hearts a quiver. Enough to grab and hold the gaze of a fleeting glance. Lips lined or not, glittery glossed, or flat matte lips, alive with colour and attitude. Come hither, or so they may seem, lips in control, lips in command, voluminous lips adorned to demand attention, not for the faint of heart, but to make the heart faint. A shameless plug for Kat Von D, she’s got that figured out!

 

A simple cosmetic that wields such power. To twist a tube and reveal a stick of sweat drenched colour, a wand unscrewed that “pops” into life to glide across eager waiting lips. To feel the cool wet paint cover warm, blood filled organs. To taste it, lick it, touch it. You know you want to, now go ahead and kiss it.Dramatic-Sexy-Lip Colours-for-Fall-pulsating-purple

Most folks shy away from the use of pastels, especially men, however Matt Crump’s rich pastels photographic manipulations prove otherwise,  proof he has embraced the use of pastels and is producing some incredible works of art that are downright delicious.

Wikipedia describes; 

“Pastels or pastel colours are the family of colours which, when described in the HSV colour space, have high value and low to intermediate saturation. The name comes from pastels, art media characteristic of this colour family. The colours of this family are usually described as “soothing”,”soft”, “near neutral”, “milky”, “washed out”, “desaturated”, and lacking strong chromatic content.

Pink, mauve, and baby blue are typical pastel colours.”

Everyone knows I’m big on pink and pastels, and if you don’t, well now you do! I feel and believe there is so much strength in these types of colours that paired with black or other colours, shades, and tones of opposite value or slight variation on the colour wheel, they are downright sexy and awe inspiring.
